BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States
cartonbrewing.com

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The key to a sessionable beer is the way it evolves over time well spent. Here we took an extremely dark malt bill and dulled its edges with the addition of lactose and nitro conditioning, then we wafted black currant notes of Bullion hops through the middle. Nuanced to keep it an interesting part of a gathering while neither dominating nor being inconsequential to banter. Drink Carton Of Milk because it does a session good.

On tap at Morris Tap and Grill in Randolph. Pours a jet black ebony hue with moderate frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of chocolate and mocha. Similar overall flavor profile.

On tap at Carton.

Really does have a resemblance in both taste and mouthfeel to a glass of milk. Pretty amazing. Malty and creamy, definitely not sweet at all and easy to drink. More of a novelty than something you want to drink every day.

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Carton is my new crush & this does not disappoint. The aroma is the most impressive thing here. Deep dark mahogany color with tan, lasting rim of a head that disperses a vague lacing. The aroma is carries a dark espresso bitterness that doesn't follow on the tongue. That's not to say there's no flavor, there's plenty of that. It's just that the smoothness dissipates the bitter. nice balance.

On tap a Essex Junction, poured a nice dark brown/black with a 1 finger head. Strong coffee flavor (for me, I don't drink coffee) with a nice, creamy mouthfeel. Smooth finish.

My first Carton beer and I would definitely try more of them.

In a 4-beer carton sampler at Blend. CoM was on tap with Nitro.
Not exciting, The nitro definitely made it nice and smooth, but roughness was not really a problem to begin with.

Good beer, but a little lacking in flavor to be taken seriously.
